When do I need an employee handbook? What should I put in my employee handbook? Can I get a free handbook online? These are common questions during HR Consults, and too often followed by an admission that what the client currently has was taken from a past employer.
Employee handbooks can be very smart additions to your management practices and growth plans. They support or negate your culture. Worse, they can add significantly to legal risks you may face in paying employees, hiring, and termination of employment. This session will get you well-started on developing an effective handbook that meets your needs. We will talk about what policies and practices you need and how to write the best handbook. We will discuss legal issues and risk reduction. And we will talk about why you want to remember the KISS principle in your handbook and keep it simple and short!
